There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.
Gigi Atlantis — “Wahala On The Rocks” ft. Fasina
Many great Nigerian songs were released in 2019, but Gigi Atlantis’ “Wahala On The Rocks” was easily the best one you (probably) never heard. Now, the gem of a track has finally gotten a fitting music video, which should hopefully help it reach a much wider audience.
Stunningly produced by iKON, “Wahala On The Rocks” finds the up-and-comer singing confidently about how much of a badass she is. She’s joined by the talented Fasina, who delivers a killer rap verse that elevates the already brilliant song.
The Anaka-directed clip, which highlights the song’s core theme of unabashed self-expression, is Gigi’s first-ever music video. Like with Tems’ “Try Me”, we hope this helps push the undeniable track, making the exciting singer one of 2020’s big breakout stars.
